Leading property and planning consultancy Rapleys has today unveiled a significantly refreshed brand and visual identity as it continues an unprecedented period of growth and expansion. The firm’s new look, including a new website, will help drive forward Rapleys’ long-term strategy to cement its position as one of the UK’s leading independent property and planning firms. 

For more than 60 years, Rapleys has provided market-leading advice and services to a broad range of clients across a diverse range of sectors, including automotive & roadside, retail & leisure, business space, healthcare and residential. The new Rapleys brand will build on this heritage, but also look to the future and the firm’s ambitions.

The launch of the new brand comes at a major juncture in the firm’s evolution. Since the election of Robert Clarke as senior partner in April 2015, the firm has significantly accelerated its growth and expansion. This has included, for the first time in its history, the pursuit of strategic acquisitions, beginning with chartered surveyors Biscoe Craig Hall in September 2015. The firm also recently announced the acquisition of commercial property advisers and surveyors Bartlett Property, adding Birmingham to its existing network of five offices across the UK.

Rapleys’ new brand will assist this growth profile, nurture the firm’s highly-valued and longstanding client relationships and establish a platform for success in a new era by putting the firm’s client-focussed, highly personal and commercially driven approach centre stage on a national basis.

Robert Clarke, senior partner at Rapleys, commented:

“This is an incredibly exciting time for Rapleys, with a number of recent acquisitions contributing to our continued expansion. Refreshing our brand was a natural next step in this journey, and positions us well to further accelerate our growth and realise our ambitions.

“The property industry is rapidly evolving, with new demands from clients creating both challenges and opportunities. With the right mix of organic growth and targeted acquisitions, we are better placed than ever to provide market-leading advice on a personal and nationwide basis to clients as they look to succeed and thrive in this dynamic property landscape.”
